. >> yes. ironically, he's giving them no worser deal than bill clinton gave them back to the mid-30s, high-30s for the top bracket. reasonable taxation. just taxation many of us believe. and nothing worse than bill clinton. it's interesting how bill sold it better than obama has. >> that's exactly right. chris, i want to bring in chuck todd from inside the convention hall. he's been reporting earlier this evening when there was a changed sort of unexpected and sudden change to the party platform after some criticism of changes the democrats made this year. what do you know? >> look, it was a little bit of a back track. and the way the story is unfolding now is apparently president obama wanted to personally intercede in this. here's what happened. the new party platform had no mention of the word god and had taken out a phrase that had been in the democratic party platform for the last couple of cycles. stating that jerusalem was to be -- that the support of jerusalem as the capital of israel. overnight republicans had been making hay about this. and apparently the president was very upset
back in the '90s. >> it is. welfare reform was his baby. it was something he was very proud of. it was a bipartisan achievement. and i think bill clinton more than anyone else can say president obama's not trying to undo what i did. he's trying to make it a little bit more flexible and allow states to find different ways to create jobs. so he can say the romney campaign is wrong on welfare reform. one kind of interesting thing about welfare reform, wolf, is you look back on it and read an awful lot about president obama as he matured politically. originally he wasn't a huge fan of the president's welfare reform plan when it got passed in the congress. now, of course, he is. and it sort of helps show you the way that president obama himself has changed as a politician over the years. >> that's what politicians do. they evolve. >> sometimes we call it flip-flopping. sometimes we call it evolving. >> trying to be polite. this clinton/obama relationship has intrigued a lot of folks, including me especially. but give us a little of your take on what this relationship is all about. t
think about the partisan wars of the '90s, the fact that bill clinton is now the democratic party's best person to talk to independent voters, it just shows you that, you know, everything -- everything can come around and become new again. it is amazing when you think back of what '97 to '99 was like in american politics. as polarized, frankly, as we are today, and it's that president that is now the guy that can probably speak better to independent voters than any national leader in any party. >> that's right, and on the point ed was making talking about democracy not being a blood sport, that was a riff when president obama talked about the partnership between hillary clinton and barack obama, showing that democracy does not have to be a blood sport, it can be an honorable enterprise, taking hillary's supporters into the cabinet, picking hillary herself, talking about even within the democratic party, there being a sort of bridge of respectful willingness to work together. that was the way he broadened it out from talking about working with republicans. >> reporter: think about who cou
the american people know who is responsible for this gridlock. it is congress. and the u.s. senate, with mitch mcconnell on day one saying i am not going to cooperate. we're going to start the re-election on day one, we're just going to be the party of no. i think we know where to turn. >> governor, appreciate your time, as always. anderson, you get a sense, a very colorful guy, ohio going to have to rename it now the big kahuna. >> we'll see what ohio has to say about that. we'll have a lot more from john and the magic ball throughout the night tonight. come up, we'll hear from former president jimmy carter and a special tribute to former senator ted keen kennedy. we'll be right back. ♪ ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] you've been years in the making. and there are many years ahead. join the millions of members who've chosen an aarp medicare supplement insurance plan insured by unitedhealthcare insurance company. go long. turn to senokot-s tablets. senokot-s has a natural vegetable laxative ingredient plus the comfort of a stool softener for gentle, overnight relief of occasional constipation. go
to it. you have this sense that that aspect of loyalty in s in part -- he's excited to be part of the historic moment. he believes he has a voice in it and he believes this president is someone who shares his sort of inherent world view of who the american people are. >> he had rough patch patches, but you saw all the great traits when he's going to be in vfw halls, be in pennsylvania, be in ohio. tried really hard. gave testimony. but there's only one speech that counts tonight. that's the next one. >> i want to bring reverend al sharpton in on this. you're in charlotte there in front of an enthusiastic crowd out there. what were you looking for from joe biden? what do you think he added if anything tonight? >> well, i think -- you know, i've dealt with the president and vice president since they've been in before. i think the real thing that joe biden brings aside from all this being said about his appeal to the lunch bucket kind of democrat is here's a guy that ran against barack obama in the democratic primaries. they both came to my convention. i remember when they were op

. i think we'll probably hear a lot about the 1990s but not about the last four years. because you cannot make the case that people are better off than they were four years ago. look, bill clinton did a lot of good bipartisan things. he gave us welfare reform. president obama is watering it down. we haven't had a budget reform with president obama. >> by some of the criteria you're laying down at barack obama's feet, would you say america was a worse-off country economically at the end of eight years of president bush than it was under bill clinton? >> look, barack obama inherited a very difficult situation when he came to office. no two ways about that. any fair assessment of his record needs to take that into account, piers. the problem is, president obama made it worse. we've had 42 months of unemployment above 8%. nearly one in six americans are living in poverty today. we have 23 million people struggling to find work a result of bad policies coming from this administration. and so i think what president obama is basically offering is four more years of the same. that's what h
